Abel to Yzerman

While we’re kicking tires? Let’s kick the dive while they’re down

I've been forwarded to Rhode Island for the next two weeks.  That means I'll be a little scarce.  I'll be checking in from time to time to read HockeyinDB's daily life lessons, but thumbing the phone gets old. 

If our man on the scene, Tick Tock, goes all nutso and actually trades someone for someone else? I'll probably write about it or something.   If no deals, I'll be "studying".

The worst team in hockey is visiting the Joe and this is a live blog, bitches.

Brunner a very happy Wing!

Nyquist is a sicko.  They should look into keeping him around.

Nyquist showed the poise and patience of a much older player, wow.  two opponents and an errant stick to deal with, and he made it look like no big deal.

I forgot, Penner’s still available, or as I like to call him, Fat Franzen.  Go get him Kenny.

Does Franzen ever stop hard and turn around?  Ever?


Seems that he will just kind of swirl around and heads the other way…
